Storm in this teacup
Clearly India is more than happy about the recent election mandate and of course the new prime minister. For those who feel left out and perhaps miffed with it all, don't worry! Head over to Oxford Bookstore's Cha Bar and get your shot of the Namo Chai (oh yes! this seems to be the real deal!)
As the story of our new PM goes - Modi was born on 17 September 1950 to a family of grocers belonging to the backward Ghanchi-Teli (oil-presser) community, in Vadnagar in Mehsana district of what was then Bombay State (present-day Gujarat). He was the third of six children born to Damodardas Mulchand Modi and his wife, Heeraben. He helped his father sell tea at Vadnagar railway station. As a child and a teenager, he ran a tea stall with his brother near a bus terminus. So there lies the tea-connect!
A new addition to the tea menu at Cha Bar, the Namo Chai infuses the flavor of the season with its direct connection to the new leader of the nation. The Namo Tea priced at a nominal amount of Rs 30 is being offered on a 1+1 scheme. The chai comes in the typical truckwala tea pot with Narendra Modi's face splashed on it and is served in cutting cha glasses.
This quintessentially dhabawala chai has a distinct strong clove and ginger flavor and aroma.
